It was a matter of time before Sony introduced its own adapter to bridge streaming between the smartphone and the television, especially as it has pushed Wi-Fi Miracast screen mirroring since the introduction of the Xperia T/TX and V. The recently announced Sony Miracast Wireless Display IM10 will help to stream high-quality video over Wi-Fi.
The small box attaches to your television via a HDMI cable and needs to be powered by micro USB (included in the box). You can then use a Miracast enabled smartphone such as the Xperia Z1, Xperia Z Ultra or Xperia Z to share media wirelessly to a larger screen. This includes 1080p video using Wi-Fi direct. The IM10 is NFC-enabled so it can be connected to a Sony Xperia phone by simply touching the two together. There’s no price on the IM10 just yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
